Delta Galil Industries appoints Tom Witthuhn as new CEO

Sep '06
Delta Galil Industries Ltd, the global provider of private label ladies' intimate apparel, socks, men's underwear, baby-wear and leisurewear, announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Tom Witthuhn to the position of CEO of Delta Galil USA.

Tom brings a broad range of experience in marketing, sales, and operations in both manufacturing and retail to Delta.

Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Witthuhn served for eight years as Senior Vice President of International Operations and Global Licensing for Fruit of the Loom, where he was part of a team that realized unprecedented growth in that company's history.

In addition, Tom has held senior management positions with Jockey International and TAL Inc. His retail experience also includes more than 10 years with JC Penney in both buying and store management positions.

Mr. Dov Lautman, Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are proud to have someone with Tom's skills and experience to lead our U.S. operations. We believe his unique combination of manufacturing and retail experience will position Delta Galil USA as a superior partner to our suppliers and customers."

Mr. Witthuhn replaces David Kostman, who after more than three years with Delta Galil is returning to Lehman Brothers to head the Global Internet Investment Banking Group.

Prior to joining Delta Galil, David was a Managing Director in that firm's Investment Banking Division, where he focused on Israeli technology and Internet companies. David led Delta Galil's public offering on NASDAQ in 1999.

"We wish to thank David for his service and contribution to Delta Galil and wish him much success in his future endeavors," concluded Mr. Lautman.
